You're right, the code does not set it.

How about the identity field? Is that set in the feeds you get?

Not right now, the code simply is not there - filing a feature request
via https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/issues/new/choose is always
possible, of course, but first I'd like to see if the identity field
might work for you.
